** Verence and Magrat's first meeting in ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'' probably counts, at least on the embarassment front; she's soaking wet after spending the morning gathering herbs and he's, well, TheJester in full uniform, which is embarassing enough for anyone. And when he realises he's disturbed a witch, he runs away.

* [[TearJerker Painfully]] deconstructed in the ''AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho'' audio "Urgent Calls", where the Doctor meets a lady called Lauren when she dials a wrong number and calls a telephone box he was walking past - and he gives her some medical advice that saves her life. Repeatedly, they end up contacting each other when dialling wrong numbers - the Doctor even refuses to take down her number at one point because he knows he'll contact her again later. This all turns out to be [[spoiler: a coincidence virus that somehow broke out and which the Doctor is trying to stop, and the final scene is Lauren writing a letter to him in which she admits that it would be terrible if everything happened built on luck, even though she's only addressed the letter to "The Doctor" in the hope that it would find him.]]

* Subverted and lampshaded in ''Maga/HunterXHunter'' during the Greed Island arc with "Love-Love, The City of Romance" which is "famous for its easy meetings": various {{Moe}}-looking characters [[CrashIntoHello crash into]] the main characters, [[BlindWithoutEm lose their glasses]], and generally [[DistressedDamsel need rescuing]], but the main characters ignore them because they've got a mission to complete.
